Multi-Display Other than Primary Monitor not displaying Win7

Previously this was not an issue. But with the WDDM 3D drivers enabled on Windows 7 the secondary or more monitors or not displaying the video output. On the primary display I am noticing a flicker between what is the primary and what should be the secondary. Even though the secondary display is being created it is not populating with the image. To recreate this generate a Windows 7 multi display VM, you should not see any image populated in the second display, now open any window and attempt to drag it to the second display and you will notice the primary display flickering.

As of 4.1.14 this issue still exists. Finally on a single display the WDDM drivers are operating smoothly for me, but once I go to dual monitor it is still placing both screens on a single display and flickering between the two.

Should be fixed with the latest VBox 4.3 & 4.3 Additions. Please give it a try and re-open if needed.
